Mrs. Beetons for Jenny - 1
This yarn will become Mrs. Beetons for my friend Jenny. I think the rich colours will really suit her, and she really loves Victorian style, so Mrs. Beetons will be perfect for her! They're not going to have the edging of mohair on the top bell, because I don't like the idea of one row of gold on the purple, and it won't have beads around the top either. I think the contrast of the aubergine and gold is enough. There will be the larger beads at the base of every ruffle on the bottom bell though, in gold. The wrist ribbing will be only done in the DK, because I find the combination in my own Mrs. Beetons kind of scratchy, and I'm not sure what these two would look like held together.
